The hedgerow on Perrin Springs Lane opposite Perrin Springs where the road narrows

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The hedge on Perrin Springs Lane, opposite our house, (Perrin Springs, RG9 6RB), used to be cut on a regular basis. Now it is infequently cut. Because the road is very narrow at this point my husband has to cut the hedge and the verge which encroaches on to the road on a regular basis. The last couple of times that this hedge (along the council field) has been cut they stopped cutting at the end of the bungalows (where the road narrows) and so the hedge in front of our property was not cut. Please could you make sure you cut the remainder of the hedge and not stop at the bungalows now and in the future. Also clearing the verge so it does not narrow the road even futher will make it less likely that large lorrys will drive too close to the house and take some of our roof down when they pass, which has happened on more than one occasion. Thank you. Kind regards, Judy Mousley
